Salmon Sandwiches with smoked Salmon love acidity to complement the oily fish and clean your mouth, ready for the next bite.

Fruity white wines are a joy! Especially for a summery, light meal.

Powerfull bubbles like a Sparkling Rosé or a Blanc the Noir have more body and you need it with a smokey and fat salmon. Plus bread loves Bubbles because they share the same yeasty (autolysis) flavors.

Rosé wines are a match by color and intensity.

About Salmon

Salmon is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, therefore suggested in healthy diets, 1-2 times per week.

Farmed salmon is fed with processed fish feed, whereas wild salmon eats various invertebrates. This results in different flavor, fat content and color.

Wild Salmon is more expansive, the color is more orange than pink, and the meat is more savoury.

The wine choice depends on the Preparation Method and Sauce.

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
